Glock Trigger Spring Repl. ?


December 4, 2007, 10:41 AM
I'm putting in a NY1 Trigger Spring. Before anyone comments: I know it's dumb, etc. And no, I'm not going to put the 3.5# connector.

QUESTION: Can I replace it without taking out the whole trigger-connector-spring assembly?

I have several step-by-step instructions on how to detail strip the G27, but they all have you gut everything, with the trigger spring assembly being the last thing out. Can't find anywhere if it can be done more simply.

It appears that I might be able to ONLY take out the rear pin and replace the spring without removing the rest of the guts. Am I correct?, or does everything need to come out as described:

Glocktalk has their search disabled, and I couldn't find anything else here - sorry if this is a lame request - I know it's supposed to be very easy, but I wanted to check with the experts before tinkering around...

On my G26, I had to field-strip the pistol then knock out the three retaining pins. Two are near the trigger, the other near the grip. Remove the slide catch/stop, locking block, and then lift the entire trigger assembly out. Remove the original trigger spring and pop the NY1 spring into the trigger housing. Pretty simple to do.
Follow the armorer's manual. The pins must be reassembled into the gun in a specific order.

I'd leave the gun unloaded until you have a chance to bring it to a range to function-check the gun.

I had the NY1 with the 5# (original) connector for a while. Finally switched back to the stock setup because it makes the gun unpleasant to shoot over long sessions.

Good luck!

It's far from dumb. For starters, standard Glock trigger springs break a lot more often than the NY1 spring does. Also, it gives you a firmer reset.

Strat81: thanks! Got it replaced; pretty easy.

Dry fired it about 20 times or so, wouldn't suprise me if I end up back with stock (it is pretty stiff, I can't imagine NY2!), but I'll leave it this way for awhile. Did you ever put in the 3.5# connector with the NY1? That seems to be a fairly popular combination. If I don't like this, I might throw in that connector and try that before I go back to stock.

Hopefully I'll be able to shoot tomorrow at lunch and try it out...

My Glock 19 is the 5.5# Connector and the NY1 Trigger.

IMHO it's a great combination. I grew up learning to shoot with Revolvers, so this is very similar to me and I have no problems with it. I tried the 3.5# Connector but went back to the 5.5# because I felt that the NY1 with 3.5# Connector was too light.

I like some "resistance", for lack of a better word, in my self defensive triggers so that I cannot be accussed of firing accidentally. Also, when the adrenaline is pumping that 12# Trigger feels like it's only 2#. Don't ask me how I know that.
